Gallup Survey Finds 62% of Americans Believe Transgender Athletes Should Not be Allowed to Compete on Teams That Don’t Match Their Biological Sex

New polling data released by Gallup on Tuesday found that a majority of Americans believe transgender athletes should play on sports teams that match the sex they were assigned at birth.

According to Gallup’s survey, 62 percent of Americans believe trans athletes should only be permitted to play on teams that align with their sex assigned at birth, while 34 percent said they should be allowed to play on teams matching their gender identity.

Democrats were the only subgroup in the survey in which a majority said trans athletes should be able to play on teams matching their gender identity.

The Gallup survey also found that support for allowing transgender people to serve in the U.S. military had dropped in recent years, though a majority — 66 percent — were still in favor of allowing them to serve. In 2019, 71 percent were in favor of allowing transgender men and women to serve in the military.
